Abstract:

Elastic and inelastic collisions in the Lee model are treated in a dressed-particle picture. The procedure by which the renormalization constant Z disappears from the integral equations for the transition matrix is studied in detail. A new procedure is given for obtaining the exact transition matrix for N - theta scattering. A hypothetical fermion B is introduced and the decays B to N theta B to V theta, as well as the decay in the Goldberger-Treiman model are studied in the dressedparticle picture. The iterative expansion of the B to V theta decay amplitude is obtained and is shown to agree with the renormalized power series for this decay, though such is not the case for B to N theta decay, or the decay in the Goldberger-Treiman model. It is shown that in the final-state interaction of B to V theta decay, there are cancellation effects between one-and two-meson contributions, which are crucial in avoiding divergences. Author
